Protect The Air in Your Home With Skuttle Air Cleaners
According to the EPA are 2 to 5 times higher than they are outside. In fact, because we have become so good at sealing and insulating our homes, levels of common pollutants can be dozens of times higher than in the air just outside your walls!
Skuttle Air Cleaners are available in four sizes with the Option of MERV 8 or MERV 11.
25x16x5 model 448-001 is the MERV 8 and model 448-005 is a MERV 11(perfect for allergy suffers)
25x20x5 model 448-002 is the MERV 8 and model 448-006 is a MERV 11(perfect for allergy suffers)
20x20x5 model 448-003 is the MERV 8 and model 448-007 is a MERV 11(perfect for allergy suffers)
20x16x5 model 448-004 is the MERV 8 and model 448-008 is a MERV 11(perfect for allergy suffers)
Choosing the Right MERV Option in a Skuttle Filter
Skuttle has two replacement options for filter media, MERV 8 for most homes and MERV 11 where finer filtration of airborne pollutants is needed for health reasons or to improve environmental factors.
High-Capacity, High-Efficiency Air Cleaners come in four popular sizes:
• Model DB-25-20
• Model DB-25-16
• Model DB-20-20
• Model DB-20-16
Under standardized testing, Skuttle’s MERV 8 high-efficiency filter media will capture and hold 84.9% of airborne contaminants and pollutants ranging between 3.0 and 10.0 microns in size. For reference, a single human hair is quite large in comparision, ranging from 20.0 to 40.0 microns in size.
A Minimum of MERV 8 filtration is required to begin to effectively improving air quality. However, for homeowners who insist on the best possible dust control, Skuttle’s MERV 11 high-efficiency filter media stops particles in the 1.0 to 3.0 micron range, making it the premier choice from Skuttle for very high indoor air quality.
Skuttle’s MERV 11 air filter media is the best choice for allergy suffers and can trap particles as fine as milled flour — 1 micron in size. Skuttle High-Efficiency Air Cleaners protect you and your family from harmful contaminants so you can breathe easy in your own home when used in combination with proper humidification and ventilation.
These trapped microscopic particles known irritants to the eyes, nose and throat are common in most houses. According to the American Lung Association these pollutants can also increase the risk of health conditions such as asthma, allergies, chronic bronchitis, lung cancer and other serious respiratory diseases.
The smallest contaminants of a single micron or less make up about 99% of the particles circulating throughout a typical home.
Skuttle duct-mounted air cleaners capture most of these contaminants in a deep-pleated, fluffier filter, which trap a much greater percentage of particulates over a longer period than standard, flat-filter designs. The results are cleaner indoor air, longer filter life, a cleaner HVAC system, longer furnace life, significant cost savings over time and a healthier living environment.
Among the most cost-efficient air cleaners on the market, Skuttle’s High-Efficiency Air Cleaners are designed to provide peak, whole-house air filtration, helping to make your home cleaner, healthier and safer for you and your family.
Skuttle Air Cleaners are duct-mounted, high-capacity air filters designed to provide high-level air filtration in today’s energy-efficient homes. The Air Cleaner is easily installed; filter cartridges slide in and out for quick, easy replacement.
How Skuttle Air Cleaners Work
Air cleaners remove airborne contaminants that enter a home through the return air ductwork of the heating and air conditioning system. Most media-type filters capture household pollutants by surface loading. Skuttle Air Cleaners, however, contain extensive filter material folded into a series of 5-inch pleats. Deep pleating permits higher particle collection over a longer period of time, and better air flow for less wear and tear on the furnace.
